Don Hahn Interviewed on "Beauty & the Beast" 3-D, "Alchemy of Animation"
The /Film website spoke with Disney producer Don Hahn about a variety of topics in their latest podcast interview, ranging from his long career making animated movies, trends in animation, his new book The Alchemy of Animation, and the upcoming re-release of Beauty and the Beast in 3-D.
Regarding Beauty and the Beast 3-D, Hahn commented both on the process that will be used, which will exploit the CAPS digital animation system that separates film elements into distinct layers that can be composited in 3-D; and also the business decisions behind the move, saying that they are “trying to deliver a great new piece of animation on a really familiar and beloved movie title.”
Hahn will also be signing copies of his new book The Alchemy of Animation, at the Barnes and Noble on 210 Americana Way in Glendale, CA on Thursday, December 11, 2008, at 7:00 PM.
